The Brushed On Brow

Eyebrows in make up are an ever changing trend. The 90s brought over-plucked, skinny brows, and the past year or so has brought us boxy Instagram brows. I count myself lucky that my mom never let me over pluck my eyebrows, so now I have pretty thick brows. I never have to fully draw anything on, so I am very partial to brow mascaras.

These are my top 3 brow gels with a quick review!

L’Oreal Brow Stylist Plumper Brow Gel Mascara $9.99


In 3rd place we have this rarely talked about drugstore gem. I bought this after hearing Kathleenlights mention it in one of her videos. It only comes in two colors, so don’t pick this up if you have blonde or black brows. I wear the shade medium/dark and it matches my ashy brown hair perfectly. This deposits a good amount of product without looking goopy or patchy. This lasts for hours before it starts to fade, and it never flakes off. The wand is big enough to cover the whole brow, but not so big that it smears product everywhere.

Essence Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara $2.99


In 2nd place we have the widely celebrated affordable dupe for the Benefit Gimme Brow. I have owned both, and I prefer this gel from Essence. Not only is it incredibly cheap, it also has a wider color selection and a more neutral undertone. I wear the shade Browny Brows, which is perfect for dark brown hair. The wand is tiny and perfect for brushing the tail end of my brows. This lasts all day on me, so much so that I suggest an oil based make up remover to get it off. There is only one downside to this product: it can get a tiny bit crunchy if you use too much. One to two swipes is the perfect amount of pigmentation without getting any crunch.

Glossier Boy Brow $16.00


And in 1st place: the new favorite on the scene! Boy Brow from Glossier is my most loved brow product in my collection. Everything about it is perfect. The wand is the smallest of the three, so I never deposit pigment outside of my brow line. The color I wear (brown) is perfectly neutral. It lasts all day on me and never fades or flakes off. In one swipe I get perfect brows that look professionally done. If you are in the market for a great brow gel, check this one out! You can use my link here and get 20% off your first Glossier order!
